So, this post is a long time coming…I have no idea why I haven’t talked about coconut before!
Ever since I started Whole 30 I have been COCONUT CRAZY!
Legit. All coconut all the time.
Coconut wraps, oil, desiccated, milk, cream.
So much coconut.
To stick with my theme, this week’s installment of “Health & Beauty Benefits Of,” features, you guessed it, coconut!
“For thousands of years, the coconut palm has entwined itself in history, from tropical coasts to typical shelves in global groceries. Called the “tree of life” by the many cultures that have depended upon it through time, it provides sustenance, succor and shelter. While it now grows on every subtropical coastline around the world, genetic testing underwritten by the National Geographic Society in 2011 showed the coconut originated in India and Southeast Asia. From its original home, the nut—which can float—made its way independently, traversing both hemispheres.”
Just a little history for ya.
You can’t go anywhere without hearing about this nut. It’s in every grocery store, loved in the health world and is part of so many beauty crazes.
So what are some benefits of this nut?
